5 Year Blogaversary Giveaway for my faithful followers

*********Give- A-Way*********


Morning Sweet Friends,

So how was your weekend?? 
 Did you have some great Father's 
Day Celebrations and spoil the
 Dad's at your house??  Hope so!
We all need some spoiling..at least
 once in awhile.  Right!  lol


We had a really nice day with some good eating, and
 just had a nice relaxing time, so think the 2 Dad's in our
 family enjoyed their day. I got beef brisket from Sonny's
 BBQ and their awesome baked beans, so they didn't have
 to grill, cause I am not much at grilling....since hubby
 always does that!
  but, I did make some corn on the cob,  and a tropical
fruit salad with poppyseed dressing, and garlic bread
 and chocolate muffins, all at hubbies request, course I
 asked him first what he wanted!!  lol     Have to say 
we were pleased with the outcome, (once I got out
 of Sonny's.  lol...that place was mobbed and I was so
 glad I was just getting take out ) and Hubby said he 
really liked the table, since he got to see it early as it
 was done on Friday. So that was nice!
 I will probably post some pics tomorrow if time allows.

Well now..........on to the Give A Way Information!!

This Give-A-Way is to celebrate my 5 year blogaversary

Oh, my favorite key lime cookies. I feel guilty even entering since my blogging and blog reading is on hiatus. I miss it and long for all this work to be done so I can be "normal" again! The prize looks so fun! Thanks for sticking with me!

Oh, heck to the y-e-s I wanna enter the drawing!!! I tasted key lime cookies about just about this time last year for the first time during my Daddy's funeral stuff. Someone brought them to my parents' house. (Folks in the Midwest are big on feeding mourners!) I remember being really, really sad and having just gone through one of my sporadic crying (it may have even been wailing!) spells. I blindly reached over to get a cookie off the big assorted platter to assuage my feelings (which explains why I'm fat!), and a key lime one was what I pulled up. I very abruptly stopped crying and said something like, "Ooh wee! That's got some bite!" Everybody just started laughing. They said my voice sounded like ET when I said it. Whatever! That cookie brought levity to a very dark situation. I haven't had one since, but I remember how good it was. So yes...I wanna be entered in the drawing! Key lime cookies: the new comfort food! :-)
